“A short trail passes eroded sandstone rock formations that will bring out your inner field geologist!”

Start in the parking lot at the far west end of the road that traverses the park. Read the signage to glean important information about the history of the area. Evidence suggests this area has been used as a Native American hunting and camping ground for 12,000 years. Projectile points, potsherds, and tipi rings have been discovered in the park. Continue west as the trail curves around sandstone formations that have a Swiss-cheese look from water erosion over thousands of years. The trail forms a small loop at the western end, where you're encouraged to explore the nearby rock formations.
Flora & Fauna
Mule deer, white-tailed deer, antelope, wild turkey, sharp-tail grouse, wildflowers, and other birds are abundant in the state park.
